Motorola Edge SAR Score Exceeds FCC Limits in States According to This Report
Top Ten Smartphones With Highest SAR Ratings
In various countries, regulatory bodies have set maximum SAR ratings that devices are allowed to emit in order to reduce the possibility of consumers with devices getting cancer. In the United States, the FCC limits cell phones to a SAR of less than 1.6 W/Kg. The only phone to top that figure on BanklessTimes’ list is the Motorola Edge
The report states that all cell phones emit radiation. Factors that determine the amount include the type of handset, model, age and strength of its antenna. The distance between the phone and the nearest cell tower is also important. Phones that emit RF radiation generally warm the area of the body directly next to the phone, although this is not enough radiation to warm the body significantly.
The FCC suggests that to limit exposure to RF radiation, consumers should limit their exposure to cell phones, use cell phones for shorter periods of time, and use hands-free technology.
ZTE had two phones at the top of the list with the lowest SAR scores
The data used by BanklessTimes comes from the German Federal Radiation Office. Other sources show conflicting data with a test of the Edge (2020) at 0.81 W/Kg and the 2021 model weighing in at 1.00 W/Kg, both well below US and EU limits.

Again, using data from the German Federal Radiation Office, the lowest radiation Android phones start with the ZTE Blade V10 with a SAR rating of 0.13 W/Kg. Then comes the ZTE Axon Elite and its rating of 0.17 W/Kg. The third most secure Android device is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G (.19W/Kg) followed by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (.21W/Kg), Samsung Galaxy A80 (.22W/Kg), Samsung Galaxy A72 ( .23W/Kg).
